Yamato 1/60 VF-11C with Super Pack

I haven’t watched the entire Macross 7 series yet, and am slightly hesitant because of how music is used as a literal weapon.  However, when I saw Yamato release the VF-11C Thunderbolt, I was drawn to its appearance:  I really like the bone-white look, and the curved nosecone.  I also looked at the VF-11B, but the dull gray color scheme with orange accents doesn’t appeal to me.

I like the VF-11C best in its fighter mode.

The Super Pack consists of two boosters, and two pieces of leg armor, each of which attach with a small circular magnet.

There are some nice gimmicks:  the cockpit is ejectable, and the white flat pointy piece you see between the legs is really a shield for the left arm.

If you’ve seen pictures of the VF-11C in an off-white/yellowish color scheme, those pictures came from an earlier prototype.

The VF-11C is slightly longer than the VF-1.  Here’s a picture comparing it to the VF-1S Hikaru.

I bought the VF-11C from AmiAmi, at a 15% discount off the list price, and 50% off shipping!  http://www.amiami.jp/shop/?set=english&vgForm=ProductInfo&sku=TOY-RBT-0977&template=default/product/e_display.html

CM’s Corporation’s Macross Figure Collection Part 3

Here’s Part 3 of CM’s Corporation’s Macross Figure Collection!

We have a lot of Max fans out there–this collection doesn’t disappoint:  here’s Max in a DYRL flight/space suit!

Then from one of my earlier posts, Max in his Zentraedi-size flight suit!

Now here’s Minmay from her first concert in DYRL, and here, CM’s corrected the hairstyle in the corresponding figure in the Minmay Special collection.

From Macross Plus, here’s Isamu, in his signature pose, where he mimics a veritech fighter with his hand!

Here’s Sammie Porter, one of the SDF-1 bridge bunnies.

Finally, from Macross 7, we have the “Girl with Flowers”.

CM’s Corporation’s Macross Figure Collection: Part 2

Here’s Part 2 of CM’s Corporation’s Macross Figure Collection!

First, we have Misa (Lisa in Robotech) in uniform.

Misa Hayase (Lisa Hayes in Robotech)

Then there’s Roy in a DYRL space suit.

Roy’s hair is detachable, so you can attach his helmet.

Here’s Minmay sitting at a desk.  This one is the same as the one in the Minmay Special, but Minmay’s hair is blue instead of black.

There are several items on her desk–nice touch!

Here’s Roy in his VF-1S cockpit.

From Macross Zero, here’s Sara Nome.

Finally, from Macross 7, here’s Basara with his guitar.

CM’s Corporation’s Macross Figure Collection: Part 1

CM’s Corporation has a 3-part gashapon Macross Figure Collection.  Here’s Part 1.

Hikaru Ichijo in DYRL Pilot Suit

Ishtar from Macross II

Macross II wasn’t as popular as the original Macross.  In my opinion, the characters and storyline were weak:  a reporter helps out an alien songstress.

Minmay in her final concert. Unlike the figure from the Minmay Special collection which has black hair, this one has blue hair

Mao Nome from Macross Zero

Mylene Jenius from Macross 7. She's holding a guitar.

Minmay doll with red dress. There's a switch on her back, too, just like the doll from the Minmay Special collection

These figures look great, but if you get them, I recommend getting a sealed display case because these figures have a nasty plastic odor.
